This title focuses on new perspectives on some of Tate's key paintings by Picabia, Picasso and Ernst, as the conclusion of a two-year study into their history, context, materials and techniques. The paintings selected for the study have almost all been radically reworked by the artist, and both documentary and technical research has been carried out to give new insight into the earlier versions of these works. The project was carried out by Tate paintings conservator Annette King, funded by the Clothworkers’ Foundation, London, working with Tate conservation scientists.

A number of international art historians, conservators and conservation scientists will present new research into Picasso and Picabia, covering both their early and later periods of painting, to give context and a broader perspective.
